Jerry B. Epstein: Developer, philanthropist, irrepressible adviser

URL: http://www.jewishjournal.com/giving/article/jerry_b_epstein_developer_philanthropist_irrepressible_adviser_20101112

Jerry B. Epstein is probably best-known as the developer of two apartment complexes in Marina del Rey. He and his wife also have long been very generous supporters of Saint John’s Medical Center in Santa Monica. But as much money as Epstein has donated to his favored causes, which also include AIPAC and the Washington Institute for Near East Policy, some of his most notable contributions can’t be totaled up in dollars and cents. That’s because Epstein, 87, has made something of a second, unpaid career out of offering advice on every topic under the sun, even when some of it is unwelcome.
